Howe Lake Trail
Howe Lake Trail is an off-the-beaten path trail that takes you on a relaxing journey to Howe Lake. Although not surrounded by mountains like a lot of other trails in Glacier National Park, the end rewards you with stunning lake views and showcases mountain peaks in the distance. This hike also is home to a lot of fire weed and a lot was burned in the fires that took over the park years ago.
